HER SHADOWS

from “The Seventh Victim”

in honor of the (bad)Dreamland of Val Lewton who blocked out such fear-laden imagery in his Noir

(OH  Chiaroscuro!) & also succeeded. I think, in blocking out that golden hour that filmakers look for,near dusk,

when the light is just right to clearly convince us all, on film  “There’s Beauty, There’s Good, There’s Hope.”

.

.                                            HER  SHADOWS

When the time is right

The camera Artist  blocks out,

Frames, focuses, re crops,

To go  on his very own shadow chocked shot

Oh, he shapes the shadows for

Her, a  ruined running fear-filled fatale

who can only be, somehow logically, lured  into her shadows

(within an illogical hidden zoo)

Where at least one beast pursues her

fast footsteps,furiously echo just farther back in the dark

synchopated chasesteps/ high heels on one end of wet streets, & pursuit

.

She must be drawn to

She must be lured to

She must fold into

Saving Grace shadows
